Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

If anyone is looking to sell their 18" 75th anniversary wheels let me know! I have a 75" with 20" wheels and I'm looking for a matching set for some winter tires!

Is that 75th black or green? Love the new front end, hoping the 2017 is the same.

The 75th is black, and yes that is the whole new front end for the 2017 models

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Pulled the trigger myself on Saturday.Turned in my 2014 Limited a few months early and picked up a 2016 75th Anniversary Edition Limited. Lux group and Advanced Tech, V6 with pano-roof.

The first offer from the dealer was $650 a month for a 36-month lease 10K miles, Zero down. I looked at the sales manager and told him to get serious and not to waste my time. I reminded him, this was my 4th vehicle from them in the last 12 years.

I should note that they called me asking me to come down to take a look since my 2014 was in high demand. They mentioned with the 20K miles on my '14, I was in a really good position to get a great deal on a new 2016.

They asked me where I wanted to be and I told him under $500. He told me he couldn't make those numbers work. I thanked him for his time and started to walk. As I was getting into my car, they came out after me asking me to give them a few more minutes. I agreed and a short time later I was driving off the lot in my new vehicle for $0 down, 10K 36-month lease at $498 a month and they threw in free oil changes for the entire lease. Not bad for a $48K MSRP vehicle.

It amazes me that they tried to get me to pay $152 more a month and amazes me even more that they try to get anyone to pay $650 a month for a 36-month lease on a 48K car.

Here is a crappy phone pic. It was snowing when I got this home a few days ago...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Picked up a Laredo 75th Anniversary last night, went back and forth a bit on the Limited but didn't like the quality of the standard (non-perforated) leather seats on the limited and don't want a pano roof (Texas sun) so that ruled out the lux pkg to get the ventilated seats on the Limited. Also like not having the auto rear hatch, used to fight with that damn thing on our '15 overland when I just needed a quick open to thrown in a small bag.

If I get tired of the cloth I will go with some Katzkins later down the line and get some stitching or inserts to match the 'tangerine' accent stitching throughout the interior. Sister did Katskin on her 2006 grand and after 10 years the leather wore better than any OEM Jeep leather I have seen.

Really like that Jeep now puts proper tires on the car from the factory with the Michelin Premier LTX and just really like the way everything comes together on the car with the bronze and blacked out trim as well as the fact that the wheels will look cleaner longer with the low gloss paint. Debating debadging the 75th icon beneath the GRAND CHEROKEE door lettering - that seems a bit busy.

Went back and forth as well between Recon and Granite - at the end of the day granite won out.

Upcoming mods:

Llloyd berber II mats all around and cargo area
Speaker upgrade
Might do the NAV activation via the dealer - debating as I do like the traffic colors on the interstates.

Love it. I have a 2014 Limited in the same color. My lease is up in Oct but I may just trade it in early. I'm wondering if those 75th Laredo wheels will be the wheels that come with the 2017 Laredo. I hate the 2014 - 2016 Laredo wheels. If not, I may just try for a 75th anniversary Laredo instead of waiting for a 2017.

I got mine for 525 for 39 months lease, nothing down...no taxes, no fees, no plates, not even first month. Nothing came out of my bank account. 12,000 miles/year.

MSRP was 47K, I think 75th Limited with Luxury package and Nav+ some accessory add ons.
